Our dinner here was top notch. Attentive service, delicious food, nice wine selection. All in a cozy, warm, romantic room with French decor. Quick walk from the parking garage in Portsmouth and nearby hotels. Highly recommend !

Went here with my wife for a nice dinner. Very disappointed with the wine list even though the owner tried to rationalize the listing. They call this a wine bar but very cheap wines which are marked up above their value. Food was OK but...More

This was a very nice place for meeting friends for dinner. The sound level is low so great for visiting. Food was very tasty and the setting is very nice. Duck was good, seafood chowder, pork loin were all very nice.
